The morning state can sometimes tell a lot about the problem

The odds are that waking up in the morning refreshed and feeling comfortable in your body means you are relatively healthy. The 8 signals in the morning, maybe the body in distress, from which you can see a lot of health problems!

1. morning urine, hiding 4 major health signals

Once you get up in the morning, many people will go to take a small pee. But have you ever paid attention to their urine? Especially the "brewing" morning urine overnight.

(1) Look at the color

The normal color of urine is generally light yellow or amber, once the color is too light or too dark should be noted.

The color of urine is as pink as washed meat water, black as red as soy sauce, brown as tea, or even if fresh blood or mixed with blood clots, it is recommended to go to a regular hospital for further examination, which may indicate the health of the kidneys, bladder, liver.

(2) Look at the texture

Healthy urine is described as "clear and clean", which means clear to the bottom. If there is foamy "protein urine", do not be alarmed.

The protein content in the urine is beyond the normal range, divided into physiological protein urine and functional protein urine. In addition, men due to urine posture, often urine is too urgent, too high thus will produce foam, observe a while disappeared, this is not protein urine. If the foam does not disappear for a long time, then you have to go to a regular hospital for further examination.

(3) Identify the smell

The smell of normal fresh urine is not pungent and unpleasant, but only a slight ammonia smell or even a little special faint aromatic smell.

People often say that the smell of urine, is the urine left too long, the breeding of bacteria, and urea is decomposed after the ammonia smell becomes heavy, so it smells like a smell.

The smell of urine has something to do with what food or medicine you eat, for example, if you eat garlic, your urine will smell bad.

But some specific odors are suggestive of health problems. For example, smelling like an apple, in suggesting the possible existence of diabetic ketones; smelling like a foul odor, maybe a bacterial infection resulting in a urinary tract infection.

(4) Counting times

Han healthy people in the case of normal drinking water, the amount of urine generally discharged every day is about 1500-2500 ml, and the bladder capacity of adults is about 300-500 ml, so the day urination is about 5-8 times. However, if you drink more water and sweat less, then the number of times will increase accordingly.

Of course, the number of urine can also reflect kidney function or other diseases, such as urinary tract infections, diabetes, prostate enlargement, etc., and even mental factors can also cause changes in the number of urine.

2. morning bad breath and bitterness and 6 diseases related

Bad breath occurs for several reasons, some related to oral hygiene or disease, and will be relieved after brushing your teeth. Others are stubborn bad breath, which cannot be relieved even after brushing, and the breath is stronger, which is mostly related to diseases and needs to be investigated for gastrointestinal and liver, and gallbladder diseases.

(1) diabetes + oral disease

In diabetic patients, the control of blood sugar is not stable, and when the blood sugar concentration is high, may also be accompanied by a bitter mouth phenomenon. If oral diseases also exist when or before diabetes, the possibility of bad breath and bitter mouth is also higher.

(2) Intense internal fire

If the internal fires in the stomach or liver are strong, the food cannot be absorbed and digested in time, and the metabolites produced cannot be excreted properly, so some foul-smelling gases such as ammonia will be produced, which may make the breath heavy.

(3) Pharyngitis

Inflammation in the throat can also cause bad breath and bitterness. At the same time, there will also feel discomfort in the throat, which may be painful or dry and itchy. Especially with chronic inflammation, bad breath and bitterness are more likely to occur.

(4) Constipation

People who are often constipated will also experience bad breath and bitterness. The intestinal tract is not open, resulting in feces remaining in the body, and after constant fermentation and decomposition, the amount of foul-smelling gas produced then becomes more, and some of the gas will pass out through the mouth.

(5) Gallbladder disease

If the gallbladder is diseased or the liver is damaged, the phenomenon of the bitter mouth may occur, especially when liver and gallbladder diseases occur at the same time, when you feel a bitter mouth, bad breath may also appear, so it is best to have it investigated in time.

(6) Emotional problems

When the mood is persistently irritable or low, the appetite will also become poor, coupled with the poor quality of sleep, the metabolism of the body, and the function of the internal organs affected may also cause a bitter mouth and bad breath.

3. morning swelling, maybe the kidneys call for help

Wake up in the morning

Generally, drink a lot of water or drinks before going to bed, eat too much salt in the evening, coupled with poor sleep quality, the next day will look a little "swollen eyes", with daytime activities, will also gradually recover. In addition, the following factors may also cause puffiness.

(1) weakness of the spleen and stomach

Many people tend to have swollen eyes in the morning, which is considered by Chinese medicine to indicate a lack of yang energy and weakness of the spleen and stomach.

(2) abnormal kidney function

If the edema starts from the face, the swelling of the eyelids develops rapidly in the morning, and the edema site is soft and mobile, the main consideration is edema caused by abnormal kidney function.

(3) Heart and vascular problems

If the edema starts from the feet and extends upward to the whole body, develops slowly, is relatively firm, and has little mobility, it is mainly due to cardiac insufficiency.

If lower limb calf and/or thigh swelling is present along with pain and sinking, you need to see vascular surgery and consider deep vein thrombosis.

4. Morning bowel movement hides 2 health signals

The number and frequency of bowel movements vary greatly from person to person, not necessarily every day, and are influenced by diet, emotions, medications, etc. But after the morning bowel movement can look back to see.

(1) Look at the color

The color of the stool is yellowish-brown or yellow.

If the stool is dark, there is blood in the stool, either fresh blood or dark red blood, suggesting bleeding in the digestive tract, after excluding dietary or medication factors, further examination is needed for possible diseases such as hemorrhoids, intestinal polyps, and intestinal cancer.

If the color of the stool becomes lighter, like clay stool, it indicates bile duct obstruction and the bile does not enter the intestine. It is common in diseases such as pancreatic cancer and bile duct cancer.

(2) Look at the shape

If the stool becomes thin or there are fixed indentations on the stool, pay attention to the possibility of narrowing of the intestine due to a rectal tumor. Dry and hard stools, even in the form of sheep droppings, are the result of food residues staying in the large intestine for too long and excessive absorption of water, which can easily lead to constipation. If you have diarrhea or constipation for several months, or alternate between the two, be aware of the possibility of inflammatory bowel disease and tumors.

5. Stiff joints in the morning may be 2 major abnormalities

Many elderly people feel stiff joints after waking up in the morning, but most of them are mild or can be relieved by moving around immediately. If the stiffness is prolonged, worry about it.

(1) Osteoarthritis

Usually, patients with osteoarthritis will experience morning stiffness in the early stages of the disease, and the severity of the restricted movement will gradually increase in the middle and late stages, eventually leading to the inability to fully straighten or bend the affected joint.

(2) Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is typically characterized by symmetrical small joint swelling and pain. Morning stiffness is obvious, with stiffness in the joints of the extremities and stiffness in the fingers in the morning, which improves with activity. Most of the morning stiffness in patients will last for more than an hour.

6. morning eye discharge, fire or eye disease

If you suddenly notice more eye droppings and a change like the droppings, be aware that this may be an alarm of an eye or body abnormality.

(1) Dryness and fire

"Fire is a very common reason why eye stool becomes too much. The dry climate makes it easy for the human body to suffer from dehydration, causing fire and increased eye stools."

(2) Eye diseases

Conjunctivitis tracheotomy, dry eye, viral keratitis, etc. can also cause increased eye stool and can be accompanied by other symptoms. In dry eyes, the eye stool is usually sticky and white, and filmy, and there is also photo-phobia, tearing, and a foreign body feeling in the eyes.

7. morning dizziness, high blood viscosity

Many people who stay up late are prone to dizziness in the morning because they are not well rested.

In addition, people with high blood viscosity will feel dizzy and weak when they wake up in the morning, without the feeling of being refreshed and energetic after waking up. And only after eating breakfast, the brain gradually becomes clear. When dinner is over, the mental state is instead the best, and some people are not even sleepy until midnight, which may be the signal sent to the body by the increase in blood viscosity.

In addition, cervical dispositions, in addition to neck discomfort, can also occur in the morning dizziness. For example, after waking up, you always feel a sore neck, stiff shoulders and neck, neck pain, dizziness, and dizziness.
